Summary:

When it comes to Pinterest, I am all ears, or pins rather. Pinterest is a social site that acts like a virtual pinboard where you can create specialized boards pertaining to your interests. Food and fast recipes are a common thread streaming throughout pinterest. The great thing about pinterest is that it can connect to other social media sites where sharing your interests with other becomes easy and efficient. It’s a fun past time that doesn’t create any harm, as long as you’re not too hungry while looking at all the photos. In essence, pinterest is a “Wishing wall” where anyone can pin what they want in life whether it’s a fast sports car, or delicious Lemon Drop.

Criteria:

Pinterest meets the criteria for curation because it creates a social platform where you can view other peoples boards with like interests as well as your own boards being viewed and re-pinned. It can become a highly effective marketing strategy with businesses who create pinning “games” to capture attention and awareness to their brand. This type of curation is simple because it takes the guess work out of curation, and becomes a fun and highly addictive past time that becomes as natural as checking your RSS readers.

Recommendation:

I highly recommend Pinterest because it’s a fast and fun way to become even more integrated into the social world of curation. It’s another aspect of the internet that should be explored for your own benefit. There’s no charge, no drama, and no fuss. Just a bunch of pretty pictures at your disposal at any given time.

I'm a senior at UNLV wrapping up my last semester. I'm also a current start-up owner of a online sex education/ sex toy retail store. It combines the knowledge aspect from professionals in the adult industry as well as certified sexologists and therapists with the fun and liberating option of sex toys and all the accessories that can be introduced into the bedroom, or kitchen, or wherever. Likes: sex, food, hanging out at the Vegas pools, and an awesome cocktail! Dislikes: cockroaches and mean girls (we have to stick together ladies!).
